's "meet the press." mr. obama is expected to call for an immediate vote by congress on a scaled-back plan that would only extend middle class tax breaks and unemployment benefits if the congressional negotiations fail. >>> fears over the fiscal cliff are weighing heavily on u.s. stocks, which posted five straight days of losses. the dow had a triple-digit loss on friday. the nasdaq and s&p 500 entered the day and week in the red. i spoke with one wall street trader about mow a deal could help the markets get back in the green. >> listen, if we get a deal and we get a deal that's substantive and realistic and that the market believes, i think the market will rally back and certainly rally back to the 1425, 1440 level. they won't go back it to 1475 unless they pull the complete rabbit out of the hat. i don't think that will happen. the market will certainly rally. you can feel it. every time one comes out and is optimistic, you see the market try to take back some of the losses because it wants a settlement and a resolution. the fact is it's not getting it. the market will vote with its fee
